The aim of the survey is to get a better understanding of disabled workers views of their employers attitude to disabled people in the workplace, from selection and recruitment to steps they take to help them to retain employment as the impact of their disability affects their normal functional capacity. This quite often happens as workers get older and reasonable adjustments may be required in order to ensure the person can remain in work.
It is the intention of the Disabled Workers Committee to share the findings of this survey with employers and trade unions to help them develop new approaches to supporting disabled people in the workplace in line with the Fair Work Framework, particularly the theme of opportunity for all.
The Committee will be working with trade unions and other employers organisations to circulate the survey across private, public and third sector workplaces and encourage disabled workers to participate. We are looking to identify differences in attitudes across these sectors and details of individual employers will remain confidential.
